Hector A. Pereles is an engineer turned professional counselor. Some time ago, he underwent a challenging period in my life which prompted him to reflect upon and take inventory of his career satisfaction; then he realized that engineering no longer was a fulfilling career choice.
So, after helping himself through self-help books and counseling, Hector simply decided to go pro and help others, or “take his show on the road.”
Some of his therapy approaches include Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Hypnosis, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and other talk therapy approaches. However, no single approach to psychotherapy or counseling works for everybody. Depending upon your personality, preferences, and/or the issue(s) on which you would like to work, he may utilize techniques from varied therapy approaches, especially Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as other mindfulness- and family-based approaches.
Outside the office when Hector is not not practicing therapy, he enjoys such hobbies as exercising, watching and practicing sports (especially volleyball and tennis), movie watching (I tend to be a “movie buff”), collecting and listening to music, computer work, traveling, dancing, outdoor activities (parks and recreation), and amusement and water parks. One little known fact about me, which some people find hard to guess due to my often times nerdy look, is that he used to be a competitive swimmer and volleyball player. Hector’s dream residence would have a backyard with a scaled down Six Flags Over Georgia amusement park, including the Goliath roller coaster.
